2011 Volkswagen Touareg Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Volkswagen Touareg? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Volkswagen Touareg engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Volkswagen Touareg oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen Touareg exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
